Passion Play (A Reflection)*

Inscrutable are the ways of betrayers:
treachery takes strange forms in this,
the devil's answer to their prayers.
Two millennia before, a kiss

betokened a nailing. Not much since has happened
to mar the efficacy of this sly stratagem,
whose satin edge is just as sharpened
as when Judas bussed his Master's hem.


*The title has little to do with the Biblical one. It suggested itself because I used the Judas story: more as a pun.
